Sorry I haven't been replying in here, had some wackyness posting with my account for a bit as my password went limbo for a while.
AN-6530 replicas at whatpriceglory.com
(or appropriate parts): atthefront.com has good ones, but so do a few others. I built a few of these to the CAP specs and have one left if anyone is interested.
a few places have these for around $120ish, those made by SMS out of Mexico are very accurate and well made. Corcoran are a great US maker of these still and they were an original maker back in WWII as well.
can find vintage easily, but for larger legged folk atthefront.com has new 4R and 5R also
82nd style reinforced paratrooper trousers:
- atthefront.com(nice fit, only slightly big once hot washed and dried, you need to request the leg straps in the correct canvas for $10 extra=$85 total)
- have whatpriceglory.com reinforced versions right now, these are $75 with correct 82nd details/leg straps already, pants are very long fitting in crotch rise and leg, so definitely need hot wash hot dry to shrink length, waist is close to correct.
Standard 1936 suspenders, atthefront.com
General Purpose Carrying Strap: atthefront.com (2 needed if doing early rescue full suspender style)
2 Compass Pouches:
1 Map Case Strap:
1 USMC Cartridge Belt:
WW2 .45 with leg tie: Whatpriceglory.com has nice natural leather to start.
atthefront.com are cow, whatpriceglory say theirs are horse as originals
this is the official Marvel Replica that was available couple years ago for ~$350, but around $600-up now if you can find them
I changed over to a self model shield, and now also have a foam board replica of the movie shields from a friend.
I'll show them both here shortly...
scratch built, thick stretch material in Royal Blue
Just to compare to the OG outfit:
